Welcome to Taskman¶
Taskman is a web application that facilitates Agile project management for EEA and Eionet projects.
Taskman is mostly used for software development but the principles are generic and therefore Taskman suits any project that needs a flexible project management web application.
On Taskman we aim to host all the EEA projects which have a software component.
* What is Agile?¶
Agile project management is an iterative method of determining requirements for engineering and information technology development projects in a highly flexible and interactive manner.
At EEA we use the Agile methodology for managing software development. We use the term Scrum which is an early (1995) lightweight method of the Agile methodology. The principles are the same.
The core principles of Agile project management are:
- Individuals and interactions over processes and tools
- Working software over comprehensive documentation
- Customer collaboration over contract negotiation
- Responding to change over following a plan
Taskman (this site) main features¶
Taskman is based on the flexible Redmine software. Read more about Redmine features
